Good food, good service, and right on the water. The drinks are proper and typically some good live music on busier nights. The area is a bit touristy, but the restaurant itself is not. I was impressed with the food both times I went!

Ate there twice once for dinner. Had the Guinness Beef stew and a Smethwick's on tap. Perfect. Then for lunch (a buy at $7) and the Half Dubliner sandwich (one of the best corn beef sandwiches I've had) and the beef squash/zucchini soup (it sounds...More

Not a big fan of bar staff deciding for me if I want the triple or single shot. The snack we ordered were nice. I have been o this place before, on other convention occasions, and it is a classic go-to spot. Always decent.More

Thank you for joining us. Downtown has had a slow recovery from the storm unfortunately, but things seem to be getting back to normal. We periodically adjust the menu, usually seasonally. Glad you enjoyed the Scotch eggs. Sláinte!!

This is a traditional approach to an Irish bar. It kinda smelled like sewer water but you will find that everywhere in Jacksonville. If you are already in Jacksonville, I'm sure you have discovered that this is not a town for tourists. The bar on...More

Sorry your experience with downtown wasn’t so pleasant. The area is still recovering from Irma and working on repairs. Building and hotel closures resulted in some slow evenings. Construction on the river wall is most likely the cause of the smell you experienced. Downtown is...More

The folks serving are pleasant and helpful. They know the various drinks and how to serve them. Not everyone, especially in the US, knows how to properly pull a pint of Guiness. The location is superb, and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommend this place!!
